Minister Keheliya Rambukwella says SLFP and NFF agreed during the recent meeting only to discuss about bringing about a new constitution.
Minister Rambukwella stated this in response to a recent statement made by Minister Wimal Weerawansa who said SLFP agreed to introduce a new Constitution through the Parliament Select Committee.
Later journalists questioned the Minister why a discussion is given only to NFF while other ruling coalition’s have also sought such opportunity to discuss over an amendment to the Constitution.
Then the minister said no other party has officially sought such a discussion, and the government is ready to give opportunity in the event they ask for it.
Meanwhile answering a journalist, Minister Rambukwella said government servants salaries could be increased by the 2015 budget.
